Sweet St. Vincent

"Wa, way yo say dey.
If me go leave St. Vincent
and go live somewhere else?
Yo mad, you expect me fe
leave me nice sunshine, and
go live in ah ice box.
Na because de money way ah work fa
can't buy ah good pair a shoe.
Ah ain't leaving because
a go miss me crab and calalloo.
You see like up dey yo na ha freedom.
Is one thing me can't miss
is me strong rum.
And when yo see carnival come
I can't miss de getting down.
Me love fo St. Vincent
could never done. "
